[audio]Various Artists - netBloc Vol. 9: Lo-Fi adventures on Planet Rheton! [BSCOMP0009] - Michael Gregoire
Hello again everyone. After a month off, I was eager to unleash volume 9 to the world. As the title suggests, it's focused on "lo-fi" offerings that the world of net audio has to offer. Lo-fi as a description for music is kind of vague and can include many genres. Personally, I define lo-fi as any music without slick production – music that can contain distorted samples or distortion itself applied to any number of song elements...

[audio]netBloc Vol. 12: Anaxagoras - Michael Gregoire
This was a release that I hoped to have ready in time for the holidays and was to be a holiday gift. Things didn’t fall into place as quickly as I had originally hoped, so here you have it now, a couple months late. What you’ll find with this one is a “concept” album. At least a concept in as much as a compilation can be a concept. There’s an overlying theme... that of the Moon. There’s a loosely tied narrative that is held together through the use of public domain texts, video and C...

Not in the public domain, but available for non-commercial use is the ground-breaking photography of Sergei Prokudin-Gorskii. In 1905 he was the first person to develop a way to take color photos...

This here is our proper December 2007 release... a bit late. It's a terrific collection of 10 net audio gems that explores the acoustic side of sound in varying degrees. Some tracks are purely acoustic, while others merge the digital with the acoustic. When you're done with this, be sure to leave a review and then head over to blocSonic for more surprises!

After taking a much needed month off from releasing, we’re back with another fresh batch of netaudio gems. Even with the month off, it was a bit of a bumpy ride pulling this together. During the process of attempting to acquire permissions and assets, we were unable to finalize on four original tracks and went through two rounds of changes. As is always the case though, this process ends up being beneficial for the release — since the line-up/track order is always scrutinized repeatedly unti...

Here’s another fresh netBloc release for you to soak in.

Finally, when all is said and done… this release is 1000% better because of the replacement tracks and new play order. Thanks to you artists who were contacted at the last minute and came through with the required info and assets! Today on Twitter, someone ...

We set things off in 2007 with our premiere release, “netBloc Vol. 1: The Opening Salvo”. Even at that early stage, I knew that I wanted blocSonic to be a bit more than your standard “netlabel”. I didn’t want blocSonic to be completely self-serving… it was to be a promotional vehicle for netlabels, artists and the netaudio culture. However, what I didn’t know was if artists and netlabels were going to be supportive of the compilation idea and send me lossless versions of their musi...

It’s always exciting when I come across an artist who delivers an album that can be enjoyed from beginning to end. It’s even more enjoyable when that artist is completely independent. There’s something to be said for music independence in these days of packaged and repackaged mainstream music product. Independent music isn’t held back by labels and expectations to fit a certain mold. When I first heard Ant’s “Fly”, I was very impressed by the fact that it had that classic hip-hop v...

It all started sometime last year with a friend of mine, Rob Pitt, saying that he’d love it if there were a “minimal” netBloc release. However, with the netBloc series being about variety, I felt that I couldn’t release something so narrowly focused on one sub-genre. If I were to put together something remotely like that, it had to be something more varied. I decided to begin slowly pulling together instrumental netaudio gems as I came across them while developing other netBloc releases...

Hip-hop is an incredibly diverse musical genre that has a bad reputation no thanks to the American mainstream branch of it. People who write-off hip-hop as idiotic, materialistic, violent or misogynist are only getting a small slice of what it’s about. Since hip-hop has become international there are a wide array of ideas about what hip-hop should be today in 2009 and beyond. Anyone who has ever enjoyed the music will gladly give you their opinion about what “real” hip-hop is...
